Physiology and Biophysics has a CO2 gas manifold system that supplies CO2 to our four (4) Cell culture facility rooms and supply CO2 to cell culture incubators at a safe and reliable pressure.
The manifold system has two banks of 4 CO2 Cylinders connected (4 active and 4 reserve). The Manifold room has excess tank bracket space for 8 additional backup cylinders.
The Tank manifolds are set up to automatically switch at a predetermined pressure level. A monitoring system is activated upon switching which generates an e-mail and text to notify lab personnel.
These Systems are maintained by assigned personnel. please contact the equipment Manager with any issues or questions related to our CO2 gas supply.
